New Year... New Enhancements


Thumbs Up to New Features!


Have you noticed anything new on Just A Pinch? I wanted to give you the scoop on some fun things we've been cooking up.

Many of you have asked to give a Thumbs Up when you like a review. That's a fun new feature to quickly agree, thank or show support to your Just A Pinch friends! You can also Thumbs Up comments and photos you may like. You'll get Thumbs Up notifications in your notifications globe.



No need to read through all comments to find a rating and review for a recipe. Now, with the click of a button, you can easily see only Reviews and Star Ratings. You can click the stars at the top of any recipe or tap "See Reviews" in the comments section.





If you are reading through all comments, Reviews will be shaded green to differentiate between a comment and a review.

Want to rate a recipe, tag the recipe Family Tested & Approved, and nominate it for a Blue Ribbon? Simply click "Review" in the recipe's action-bar or click "Write a Review" in the comments section.





Sometimes we all make mistakes in the kitchen. Did you Rate/Review a recipe only to realize there are typos in your review? No problem! Replace your review by clicking the arrow next to your review and selecting "Replace My Review."



...Or click "Write a Review" next to comments, it will allow you to replace your previous review.



We've also made it easier to page through comments by adding more comments to each page. And, page numbers have been adjusted to easily work your way to the first or latest comments.



We're always looking at ways to improve the site for members. Give us a Thumbs Up below and let us know what you think of these enhancements!

I must have done something wrong, I did not see the thumbs up icon on my original post..I guess it is a learning curve thing.

@grandedame If you click on the number next to the Thumbs Up (on the comment, post, photo, etc) you can see which member(s) gave you the Thumbs Up. Hopefully that answers your question!

I have a question. When you get a message that you have thumbs up and it just says Jane Doe, Charlie Smith and 7 others for example. How do you find out who those 7 others are?
